"Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, 'went to his mailbox,' and found my tax returns?"
-- Trump tweet re Pulitzer-winning NYT reporter David Cay Johnston, who received and released two pages of Trump's 2005 tax return

"Donald's had my home phone number for years. He's called me at home in the past."
-- Johnston

Of course no one has heard of Johnston, he only has a Pulitzer Prize.

The two pages tell absolutely nothing. They report that "45" made a lot of money, and that he paid a lot in taxes. It doesn't detail the income sources, nor does it show charitable contributions. These two pages are pretty much worthless in terms of information value.

There was a good point made last night: 2005 was the year that he married his current wife, and she was not then a U.S. citizen. Part of the citizenship process requires that you produce 3 years of certified tax returns, so you can guarantee that 2005-2007 were absolutely spotless.

Previous leaks of information regarding the Cheetoh Benito were actually post-stamped Trump Tower.

Humble Bundle is doing a pretty cool collection that might be just for you. Meself, I'm not keen on audiobooks, but hey -- I don't mind it if you want to get it. It's mostly The Doctor with three Torchwood CDs, but there's also a Davros series of four discs! Those make me mildly interested.

I use the term CDs incorrectly: everything is an MP3 download and without any form of DRM. The default charity is the BBC Children In Need fund, though you can specify other charities.

$15 gets you the complete set, and it's available for another 5 days.

More info at:

The fiction collection at Humble Bundle features the likes of Octavia Butler, Jo Clayton, Katherine Kurtz, Robin McKinley, and others. They're all in DRM-free formats, suitable for iPad or Kindle or Nook or just reading on a computer. There's also a mystery book that will be revealed in five days....

The default charity is First Books, a "nonprofit social enterprise that provides new books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children in need".

$15 gets you everything, and it's available for another 12 days.
